Blue Scholars: Bayani
Buy! - (Rawkus)
The Seattle hip hop duo follow up their excellent self-titled debut album and the equally strong Long March EP with a stunning 2nd full-length that sets the bar ever higher for Northwest hip hop. Sabzi’s production is still warm and soulful, but it’s also now more confident, varied and distinctive. Geologic also continues to grow as a rapper, combining his smooth, laid-back flow with smart, plain-spoken rhymes rooted in being a self-professed ordinary guy, and his blue-collar perspective shines a bright spotlight on a variety of race and class issues, while also providing some stirring inspiration for this city and country to do better. 5/25/2007 - Don Yates
